Dear Friends and Family,
Our 5th Annual Lupus Walk!
The Hyle Family walks in honor of our dear friend "Leesa Sengaphone" who lost her fight with Lupus on Feb 1, 2013. She brought sunshine to our family for many years. She never let this disease control her life..lived every moment with strength, grace and carried the sunshine spirit everywhere she went. Her motto was "Live, Laugh, Love" and she did this until the very end.
April 2016, the team raised $17,000 for Lupus Georgia Chapter in honor of our beloved Leesa by numerous people getting together reaching out to everyone they know by emails, facebook, Krispy Kreme Fundraiser in front of Costo in Dunwoody and Partnered with Spa Sydell/Perimeter Pamper Me/Silent Auction Event. This year 2017, we have a few things up our sleeves. April 2 Lupus Kickball at Lenora Park and Partnered with Fogo De Chao Corp Event/Silent Auction on April 10. I plan to spend the rest of my life spreading awareness about this awful disease and very thankful to everyone who helps make a difference to all the Lupus Warriors.
I am asking for your help to support our Team "FIFTY SHADES OF AWESOME" in donating as little as ONE DAY OF YOUR LUNCH SPENDINGS or more to help bring awareness to ATLANTA, GA. We cannot achieve this without your help.
Imagine a day when doctors can say, “There is a cure for lupus.” Until that day though, there is work to be done. That’s why I’m taking action in the fight against lupus. Join me as I participate in Lupus Foundation of America’s Walk to End Lupus Now™ in ATLANTA, GA to raise critical funds for the estimated 1.5 million people living with lupus in the United States.
Will you make a donation to help me reach my personal fundraising goal and support the Foundation's efforts to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus? A generous contribution can make a definite impact. What’s more, if your employer offers a Matching Gift Program to employees, you may be able to double your contribution with just a little bit of paperwork. Trust me, it’s worth the effort! Every single dollar counts.
Did you know?
Lupus is a mysterious and misunderstood autoimmune disease. It strikes without warning, affects each person differently, and has no known causes or cure.
Lupus symptoms can be severe and highly unpredictable and can damage any organ or tissue, from the skin or joints to the heart or kidneys.
While lupus can strike anyone at any time, 90% of people living with lupus are women. Women of color are at especially high risk.
Only one drug has ever been developed and approved by the US Food and Drug Administration specifically to treat the disease.
Together, we can solve the cruel mystery of lupus. Lets make a difference one day at a time!
